Improvise This Summer in the Gaspé Peninsula!
The International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation (IICSI), a partnered research institute at the University of Guelph, is holding its 4th annual bilingual musical improvisation camp, Coin-du-Banc en folie! / Musical Improvisation at Land’s End (MILE), August 3 to 10, in the beautiful Gaspésie region of Quebec.
This unique summer camp will engage musicians and non-musicians alike in hands-on workshops led by Marianne Trudel and other world-class improvising artists. Located at Coin-du-Banc, a village on the Gaspé coast of Québec minutes away from the famous Rocher Percé, the camp will focus on sharpening participants’ musical improvisation skills and using them to inspire outreach in their communities.
The workshops will take place in an inclusive and supportive environment, nurturing and developing musical improvisation as a vital model of arts-based community-making. In addition to participating in workshops, lecture-demonstrations, and jam sessions, campers will attend concerts and have opportunities to experience some of the unique tourist attractions of the Gaspésie region.
Spaces are still available.
